If you previously purchased a new Suunto Dive Computer, a class action settlement may provide you certain benefits and relief.
This notice is being sent regarding a proposed class action settlement involving certain Suunto Dive Computers with allegedly defective depth pressure sensors. A proposed settlement has been reached and you have been identified as a potential Class Member.
Who is included?
Under the Settlement, Class Members are all individuals who purchased new in the United States one or more of the following models of Suunto Dive Computers that were manufactured from January 1, 2006 to August 10, 2018: Cobra, Cobra 2, Cobra 3, Cobra 3 Black, Vyper, Vyper Novo, Vyper 2, Vyper Air, HelO2, Gekko, Vytec, Vytec DS, Zoop, Zoop Novo, Mosquito, D4, D6, D9, D4i, D6i, D4i Novo, D6i Novo, D9tx, and DX.

This settlement does not involve claims of personal injury or wrongful death.
What does the Settlement provide?
Under the Settlement, every Class Member who has a good faith belief that their Dive Computer has experienced a depth pressure sensor failure is entitled to have his or her Dive Computer inspected to determine whether the Dive Computer has a faulty depth pressure sensor. If it does, Suunto will repair your Dive Computer or replace it for free. Class Members can take advantage of the Inspection, Repair or Replacement Program for the longer of ten years from the date of manufacture of the Dive Computer or one year from the date the Settlement is finally approved and all appeals, if any, are resolved in favor of the Settlement. Go to Suunto Dive Computer Settlement or Suunto.com for more information on how to submit your Dive Computer for inspection.
The Settlement also reimburses qualifying Class Members for certain out-of-pocket costs. To be eligible for reimbursement, you must submit a Claim Form by February 24, 2019. A Reimbursement Claim Form is attached and also can be obtained by going to Suunto Dive Computer Settlement.
PADI eLearning certification or online training classes may become available under the terms of the Settlement. To participate, you can register by going to Suunto Dive Computer Settlement.
What are my other options?
You may ask to get out (opt out) of the proposed Settlement. If you want to opt out, you must do so by November 14, 2018. If you opt out, you will not be entitled to any of the settlement benefits and you cannot object to the Settlement.
